DIY Easter basket ideas for adults 


A zero-proof alternative for an Easter mocktail… 

Because it can feel awkward to stand around at a get-together with empty hands. These bottles from CleanCo are a great option for anyone who doesn’t drink or is trying to limit their alcohol consumption. They’ve got half the calories of the regular stuff and come in a range of flavors. We’re partial to the Clean R for a rum ‘n’ Coke minus the rum, and the Clean T for classic margarita lovers. Both are nonalcoholic with less than 0.5% ABV and have zero sugar. Bottoms up. ($29.99, Amazon)

An elevated take on melted chocolate in plastic eggs… 

For when you want to skip the drugstore and add some quality treats to your DIY adult Easter basket. This limited-edition spring gift set comes with one honey nut cereal truffle bar, a 12-ounce assortment of spring truffles, and a white chocolate sun-shaped lollipop. And thanks to this vegan box set, your dairy-free friend doesn't have to be left out either. If you’re just looking to gift ‘em (or hey, gift yourself) a few *chef’s kiss* pieces, try the individual truffle bars. We can’t get enough of the Hazelnut Butter Crisp and Campers’ S’Mores Truffle flavors. ($4.99+, Seattle Chocolate)

A practical gift for anyone whose toothbrush game could use a lil’ upgrade… 

This bundle from Quip comes with the brand’s signature sleek electric toothbrush (with a three-month battery life), along with a couple extras. Like a 100% recyclable mint toothpaste, refillable gum and dispenser, refillable floss pick, and mouthwash — along with a carry case and solar battery charger. Choose between a plastic or metal design, and pro tip: Tell your giftee to sign up for the three-month refill plan that’ll keep them at the top of their dental hygiene game. ($95+, Quip)

A candle with scents that they’ll never get tired of… 

Not only are Boy Scents candles housed in elegant containers, but they’re also available in a host of scents they’ll want to burn all the time. We’re especially into Ash, which reminds us of a warm crackling fire, or Cedar Stack, which has an elevated holiday-reminiscent scent that we love all year long. Their natural coconut and beeswax blend burns for approximately 50 hours. Light it up.($32, Amazon)

An Easter basket stuffer for adults that'll keep their diamond jewelry sparkling…

We're not kidding. Their earrings, rings, and necklaces will have never looked this good. The secret is in the cleaning solution and brush tip that'll gently remove all their gems dirt and grime. Bling-bling. ($7.98, Amazon)

Stylish slides for spring that won’t break the bank… 

It’s time to let their toes breathe. And what better way than with these fun, spring-colored Birkenstocks? They’ve got the same construction as the cork Birks we know and love, at half the price. Made from EVA (a stretchy plastic material), these sandals are super lightweight, waterproof, and skin-friendly. We won’t blame you if you buy a pair for yourself too. ($37.95, Amazon)

A cookie dough they can eat straight outta the jar, minus the stomachache… 

It’s the perfect adult nod to a beloved kiddie treat. Deux is vegan and gluten-free, packed with clean ingredients, and has 35% less sugar than normal cookie dough, so they can eat it straight out of the jar — or bake it into cookies if that’s more their speed. Each of the brand's flavors have also been enhanced in some way: We love the Birthday Cake flavor infused with ashwagandha for added stress relief, and the new Summer Fridays flavor with collagen support. Or splurge on their pack of bestsellers. ($15+, Deux)

A set of cards that’ll give the gift of meaningful conversation…

Icebreaker has 150 prompts designed to help people rekindle their relationships and dig deeper into new ones. Whether they want an excuse to strengthen the bond with a partner or connect with friends or fam they haven’t seen in a while, this thoughtful gift will keep the convos rollin’. ($24.99, Amazon)

A customized gift for the puzzle lover in your life… 

As long as they don’t lose any pieces. Turn a meaningful image into this personalized puzzle — and add some text if you’d like as well. It’s only 110 pieces, so putting it together won’t take all day. We recommend adding a frame in their Easter basket so they can hang it as soon as they’re done. ($18.99, Amazon)

A toy that’s perfect to add to a basket for your S.O…. 

The Lelo Tiani 2 can be used with a partner or on a solo mission, thanks to its unobtrusive inner arm that sits within the vagina. Once the inner arm is placed, the outer arm should sit right on the clitoris. Pair it with the remote control and you or your partner can control the vibrations by tilting, moving, or syncing from up to 39 feet away. Check out our recs for more sex toys for couples here. Good vibes, incoming. ($104.30, Lelo)

It’s also got two juicy, handpicked Royal Verano pears to couple with all that other sweet stuff.
